I'm here to tell you that all of your cheese and wine dreams have come true. You don't have to be a total wine-o to understand that cheese and red wine are practically made for each other. However, sometimes heading all the way over to the cheese bar at the grocery store is such a hassle. There are too many choices (what do I get, white cheddar, brie, Swiss, chevre?) and let's face it, eating a lot of cheese can weigh down your tummy. Thankfully, House Wine and Cheez-Its have decided to partner up and come up with an ingenious wine pairing of original cheez-its and the brand's original house red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
Meet the House Wine + Cheez-It Box
According to the press release, the limited time product will be available on the Original House Wine's website starting July 25 at 5 p.m. ET. The cheese snack and box of wine combo will run $25 and will only be available until supplies last.
Jeff Delonis, senior marketing director for Kellogg's U.S. Snacks division, shared: "We are thrilled to partner with House Wine to combine their expertise and America's favorite 100% real cheese snack into one portable box."
But don't fret if you can't snag yourself a box. The website has also included a Cheez-it and wine pairing guide which includes the following pairings:
- White Cheddar + Rose
- Grooves Zesty Cheddar Ranch + Malbec
- Cheddar Jack + Cabernet Sauvignon
- Extra Toasty + Sauvignon Blanc
- Douz Sharp Cheddar/Parmesan + Chardonnay
Throw your cheese board and knife to the curb and grab one of these boxes for your next summer shindig. Not only is it totally portable (perfect for the pool, beach, campground or lake!) but it's a delicious pairing that deserves its time to shine. And that time is right now.
